IPNOT PICTURE OF THE DAY December 14th 2016: Trying to Wake the Sleeping UN to Save Hunger-Strikers

Our daily picture for Wednesday December 14th shows a solidarity demonstration held for the hunger-strikers Ahmed Abu Fara(29) and Anas Shadid(19) outside the besieged Gaza Strip office of UNSCO.
 
Behind the name of UNSCO is the United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process – who is currently Bulgarian Nickolay Mladenov, whose appointment was considered a great coup then for Israel.
 
As Bulgaria’s defence and foreign minister Mladenov had been seen as pro-Israel, meaning pro-occupation. As a UN Special Coordinator his role in the ‘Peace Process’ has consisted of steady stream of statements of being ‘concerned’ or ‘deploring’ occupier Israel’s activities and announcements that someone – but not him – should work to lift the siege of Gaza Strip.
